Never heard of him, but I do like his style...

Chef Isaac Toups, of Toups Meatery in Nawlins. I like his cooking style, and he makes his chicken and sausage gumbo the same way I do, although I also add my homemade tasso, just because I made it just for gumbo.

I have been the guy with the perpetually stirring wisk making a dark roux, many times.

Yep, he was pretty cool on Top Chef. He's got a great personality and apparently cooks very well too.

Love Gumbo -...any meat, I do like Okra in mine. I also use Alton Brown's method of making a roux in the oven and it is very easy. 350F stir every 20 minutes until you get the color you want. ATK also uses a method of toasting the flour dry and then adding to the oil. I have not tried that one.
